Ford Field earning a reputation

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on October 20, 2011 – 4:58 pm

The way the crowd volume is tangibly effecting opponents is making it’s way around the NFL.

Jay Adams of the Atlanta Falcons reported on Twitter that, “Falcons practicing with sound system at 124 decibels. Average NFL crowd registers at 108.”

Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk commented on the Twitter post: “Two weeks ago the Bears were flagged for nine false starts when they played the Lions at Ford Field, leading coach Jim Schwartz to set aside a game ball awarded to the raucous Detroit crowd. Last week the 49ers dealt with the crowd noise slightly better — but still had five false starts and wasted two timeouts trying to get plays called.

“The crowd in Detroit, if you hadn’t noticed, is loud.”

    I’ve been to every home game this year and will attend the rest and the one thing I can say is…we shall get louder and LOUder and LOUDER!!! Now all we need is for our most feared defense in the league to keep up the good work and join with us. We’ll keep them off center and unbalanced while you attack, attack, attack and keep them pinned down forcing negative yards and turn-overs. As I’m sure you noticed, every false start, sack, fumble, etc, just causes the crowd to become increasingly louder. This factor should hold true all season. We will stand by the team and know you will not let us down, but only continue to impress us and amaze us week in and week out. Go Lions and I will see everybody Sunday at Ford Field!!!!

    We have to run the football to be sucessful on sunday to win.

    I think releaseing running back arron Brown was a mistake he was a quick hitter with his speed.

    It may not be fair, but the Detroit crowd definitely knows what it’s doing to sabotage the visitors!

    We All should Start Roaring as soon as the Opposing QB bends to start Telling his Team the Play Not just when the Opposing TEAM get’s to the Line.
    By the Time the other team gets to the Line they ALLREADY know thier play.
    I know that it is A lot of Roaring. But, It is Totally worth it!

    Finally something to cheer about. The truth is, we need runningback help. The Lions need to go after michael bush of the raiders, Brian Westbrook or Tiki Barber at RB(Cheap investment) or go after Javon Ringer who has Michigan State history.
    Barry looks like he is still in shape.
